Message Text: ATI Technologies announced the Radeon Xpress 1250 integrated graphics chipset for the Intel mobile and desktop computing platform - its first to support AVIVO and HDMI and HDCP.

The Radeon Xpress 1250 promises unparalleled graphics performance, providing more horsepower for the latest 3D games and the most sophisticated multimedia applications.

The Radeon Xpress 1250 will be available through leading notebook OEMs, including NEC who today launches the NEC LaVie L Advanced Type notebook for the Japanese market.

"NEC's LaVie L Advanced Type is powered by ATI's new Radeon Xpress 1250 to offer our customers a new standard in integrated graphics performance on the Intel platform," said Mr.Hiroyuki Masuda, Senior Vice President, NEC Personal Products, Ltd.

Radeon Xpress 1250 is the first Intel-based chipset to support ATI's Avivo display and video architecture. The technology produces vibrant images and smooth video playback, including high-definition content.

Radeon Xpress 1250 is Windows Vista-ready and is designed to handle Vista's Aero Glass features with ease while standing up to even the most demanding multitasking environments.

The chipset can host an HDMI 1.2 port and has HDCP 1.1 on board too, to ensure protected HD content is played at full resolution. HDMI support requires notebook motherboard makers to add a TDMS (Transition Minimised Differential Signaling) chip, just as they would if they were to incorporate a DVI port. The part will support dual independent displays.

The Radeon Xpress 1250 supports the Intel Core 2 Duo, Core Duo, Pentium M, and Celeron M processors. The chipset supports DirectX 9 (Vertex/Pixel Shader 2.0), as well as decoding of MPEG-2, H.264, and WMV9.

Radeon Xpress 1250 supports the latest memory and networking standards. In conjunction with ATI's SB600 South Bridge support is provided for up to 10 Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports, 4 SATA II ports with RAID capability.
